Flowering Months
Throughout the growing season, water Peruvian lilies regularly and feed container grown plants each month. When picking alstroemeria pluck the flowers rather than cutting as plucking stimulates the rhizome encourage further growth. In autumn, cut back the old Alstroemeria flower stems and apply a dry mulch of chipped bark or straw to the base of the plant to protect it from cold winter weather. Alstroemeria prefers to be left undisturbed but can be divided in autumn or spring if clumps become overcrowded.Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
Bare roots should be planted at the earliest opportunity following delivery to a depth of 2.5cm (1") deep. Grow alstroemeria in a sunny or semi shaded position in fertile, moist, well drained soil. Alternatively, plant the bare roots in patio containers in soil based compost such as John Innes No.3. When handling bare root alstroemeria, take care not to damage the fleshy roots.

very pleased 2016-08-29

These plants didn't come to much in their first year but are now well established and have been flowering well since late June, the darker red ones are particularly pretty, and last well in a vase. A great purchase.

Better each year 2016-08-14

Bought 10 of these a couple of years ago. Did well last year but I was a bit worried how they would fair during the winter. However, I needn't have worried as it was mild and all came through and I think this winter they should be more established. The plants have increased in size this year and have been flowering for months and go on and on until the first frosts, making them a very worthwhile addition to any border,

absoutely bloomin delighted 2016-07-20

I ordered these about 4 years ago, planted as per instructions and nothing happened until the second year. I was inundated with stalks of beautiful flowers which last for over two week indoors. I also realised that pulling to use indoors or to give as gifts increases the growth span. Proof that patience is a virtue.
